Description

Lincs Wind Farm Limited (the "customer") has approached DNV GL to discuss potential cable remedial works in the Lincs offshore wind farm ("Lincs") which are planned to be carried out in 2015. Lincs has been in commercial operation since September 2013, The main method of protection for the array and export cables was burial, but some cable sections did not achieve the targeted burial depth. The Customer would like to reassess the risks to the cables and the most suitable methods of additional protection, if any, and asked DNV GL to outline a methodology for this based on the published DNV pipeline standards and recommended practices. DNV GL extracted methodologies from DNV GL pipeline standards and recommended practices in order to develop a coherent approach which enables quantitative assessment of risks to specific cable sections.
